Around Jan/Feb 2010 I’m going to start travelling around Australia. I’ve decided to take a gap year before university and have set myself about 6 months in which I’d like to travel. My name is Charlotte and I’m 19. I’m going on to study Law at Oxford and feel this is one of the few chances I’ll get to really experience Australia for such a long time. Therefore, I’m planning on making this very much a tourist kind of holiday. I’m planning on staying in hostels etc but I’ll be honest; I’ve got the sort of ‘list’ you make of places to go and things to see. Though I am happy to travel on my own if need be, I’m looking for someone interested in joining me and doing the same. I’ve travelled before on my own but its more fun to do it with like-minded people! I’ve family and friends over there willing to provide some accommodation, the rest I plan on sorting out myself. I pretty much want to hit the main spots all over, from Monkey Mia to Byron Bay and at the moment I’m looking at purchasing something along the line of a Greyhound bus pass so I have the freedom to up and travel when I want within the time period. I’m yet to plan or begin looking too much into things as I appreciate travelling with others requires flexibility. I’ve also thought about the possibility of New Zealand and Thailand so I’m open to a lot. I’m posting this on a few websites so any one who is interested or has any questions please feel free to contact me on here!
